rifle record - breaking perform-
ances as the meet drew to a close.
In the second-to-last event of
the afternoon, two - miler Ken
Brown outsprinted Bob Lake of
Michigan State in a crowd stirring
last lap and set a new Big Ten
record with the eye-opening time
of 9:04.9. The old record was
9:07.2, held by Michigan's Don
McEwen.
Torrid Anchor Leg
In the meet's final event, the
mile relay, George Kerr ran a

fantastically fast anchor leg to
catch Michigan's Seth at the wire
and give the Illini their second Big
Ten record of the day.
. Kerr's unofficial time for the
quarter was a spectacular :46.5
and the Illinois team time of
3:16.3 broke the Conference rec-
ord of 3:16.8, set by Ohio State
last year.
A Michigan trio of Bryan Gib-
son, Ergas Leps and Cephas,
handed Seth a yard lead, but as
Coach Canham later remarked,
"We knew we had to give Tony
about a 10 yard lead in order to

gan's time of 3:16.4 also broke the
old record.
Other Illinois firsts were re-
corded by Paul Foreman in Friday
night's broad jump, Bill Brown in
the shot put, Kerr in the 880 and
Dave Bowers in the mile.
Brown's winning toss of 52' 11%"
came on his first attempt of the
afternoon. Michigan's Ray Locke
with a toss of 52' 3%", the finest
of his varsity career, came in sec-
ond and Terry Trevarthen was
third with a 52' 1%" put.
Shadowing Kerr all the way in
the 880 was Leps of Michigan, who
took second in an approximate
1:54 fiat. Michigan captain Earl
Deardorff finished fast to take
third. Kerr's time of ,1:53 was
three-tenths of a second off the
Conference record held by Stacey
Siders of Illinois.
Bowers' winning time of 4:09.9
In the mile was just a half-second
off the Big Ten record held by
John Ross of Michigan. "Iron
Man" Leps of Michigan, who ran
three fine races in the course of
the afternoon, finished third.
Another frustrated record break-
er was Michigan State's Willie At-
terberry, who fell a second
short of the 2:11.7 Big Ten
mark in the 1000-yard run. Plac-
ing for Michigan were surprising
Fred Montour, who outsprinted
teammate Dave Martin for third.
Gibson Best Ever
In the 440 Michigan's Gibson
ran the best time of his career,
an unofficial :49.3, but finished
still behind winner John Brown
of Iowa, who had a :48.6. Purdue

star Dave Mills was pulled from
this event because of an injury
suffered in Friday's preliminaries.
Another all-out Michigan per-
formance was delivered by Boyne
City sophomore Steve Williams,
whose 6'51/2' leap in the high
jump placed him second to Reggie.

How does this team compare to
last year's champions who rolled
up 71 points in winning the in-
door meet? Coach Leo Johnson
of runnerup Illinois said "They're
better this year, mainly because
they have more overall team
strength."
And how about Michigan's

SPIRIT DOES IT-Bryan Gibson, one of Michigan's many come-
back stars at the Big Ten track finals, gives a last oomph in his
bid to take second place away from Indiana's Reggie Laconi. The
latter won by a hair, but Gibson came back to star in the mile
relay.

chances for a third title next year?
Well, let the record speak for it-
self. In yesterday's meet the Mich-
igan sophomores scored 261z
points, the juniors clicked for
33 5/6 and Captain Deardorff
scored all three of the seniors'
points with a third in the 880.

one-man performance here yes-
terday to lead Illinois to its 11th
straight Big Ten Gymnastics
Championship.
Michigan finished a far - down
fifth.
Hadley scored 52 of the 114.5
Illini points and he needed them
all as host Minnesota was only
nine points back and Michigan,
State a close third, one and a half
points behind the Gophers.
Lose Battle
Michigan barely lost out in its
fourth place battle with Iowa as
the latter totaled 51.5 points to
the Wolverines' 48. Thus the fifth
placers followed the season long
pattern, losing to the same four

teams that inflicted their dual-
meet losses.
However, it was apparent to all
present at the meet that Michigan
was better than the score showed.
Al Stall, admittedly a hot and cold
performer, but usually dependable
in the clutch, fell off his second
apparatus in two days yesterday
when heyslipped on the side horse.
Two Fall To Score
Thus Stall, a top point getter all
year for Michigan was shut out
completely. Then there was 25
year old Wolf Dozauer who gave

his usualsteady performance
which Just wasn't good enough
against the more youthful com-
petition. He also failed to score.
This left Rich Montpetit as the
only Wolverine to notch points in
the apparatus events, and Coach
Newt Loken said that the small
Canadien simply tried too hard
to make up the deficit and con-
sequently wasn't up to his usual
good performance.
Osterland Second
Rebound tumbler Tom Oster-
land was at top form, however,

finish, a second, with what Loken
called, "the best routine of his
life."
Teammate 'T' Francis was
slightly off on both routines and
could only muster a sixth after
a second place tie with Osterland
in qualifying. Francis said he was
a "little tired."
The tumblers also scored, but
not with their usual flock of points
as Jim Brown, grimacing with
pain, limped to a sixth place tie,
and Captain Bill Skinner had an
off day to finish eighth.
Three Battle
With the Wolverines gaining
only a fraction of its "potential"
points, Illinois, Minnesota and
Michigan State had a real dog-
fight for the top spot.
"Illinois was superb," said Lok-
en, "and that Hadley was just out
of this world. He'll be around for
two more years, too." Illinois al-
ways seems to have one outstand-
ing performer each year, which
shows in the 11 titles in a row.
Last year, they not only had one
star, but two, in Abe Grossfeld and
Don Tonry.
Buck Stars
Besides Hadley, other standouts
were Bill Buck of Iowa with a first
in side horse and second in parallel
bars, Stan Tarshis of Michigan
State, who continued his suprem-
acy in the high bar, and Duane
Hoecherl of Minnesota, who was
real consistent in addition to win-
ning the parallel bars. He showed
this consistency by his runnerup
finish to Hadley in the all-around
division Friday.
Support Hadley
Many other individuals, too
numerous to mention, came up
with fine spot performances, as
Pat Bird of Illinois with a 95.5 in
the still rings and teammate Al
Borasch with a win in tumbling.
Borasch, who just became eligi-
ble, teamed with Bird and the
other Illini to back Hadley up with
good support.

The Tough Got Going
COLUMBUS-There's an old adage in sports which is posted on
many a locker room door:
WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH,
THE TOUGH GET GOING
Somewhere in the mind of Michigan shot-putter Terry Trevar-
then that thought must have been stowed away.
"We just had to get better," he said, speaking for himself and
co-putter Ray Locke. "Things were getting tough."
Trevarthen had just finished third and Locke second in the Big
Ten track finals yesterday to narrow Illinois' early lead to 23-22.
Things really were bad for the Wolverines, who had been given
the favorites' role after doing well in Friday's qualifying trials.
Broad-jumper Les Bird hadn't contributed much Friday because
of an injury. He did all his jumping on courage alone as he placed
fourth.
Then, yesterday, everything began to go wrong.
High-jumper Dick Cephas, who had been counted on for a second
place, cleared only 6'1" for a third of a point. Bennie McRae, a
favorite in the high hurdles, got off to a bad start because of un-
adjusted starting blocks and lost his steps. He banged over four of
the six high sticks and finished fourth. Then John Gregg, 60-yard
sprint runnerup last year, was disqualified after two false starts.
But that was enough to get Michigan fired-up about the whole
matter. There had been some question as to whether this year's tean
could even begin to match the desire that the whiz kid sophomoree
aisplayed at Madison, Wisc. last year.
After Gregg fouled out in the seventh event,'sprinter Tom Robin.
son began to erase any doubts about the Wolverine spirit.
Here was a dashman-one of the 1959 whiz kids-who was injured
so badly last spring that former track great Jesse Owens personally
advised him to quit running for a full' year. Robinson adhered to the
suggestion for a half-year, then began working out gradually in
November.
He took it easy all winter-running one event per meet some.
times, not at all on other occasions.
But after 60 yards of Ohio State dirt elapsed under his feet,
the Bahaman proved that he was again ready to cha~llenge the world's
best sprinters. He won the race at :06.1-his fourth time at that fast
clocking-to put Michigan ahead in the point race with the Illini.
Meanwhile in the high jump, things had just ended. In second
place, to everone's surprise, was Michigan sophomore Steve Williams
who had just equalled his best-ever height of 6'5%". Here was a
lanky youngster who had been accused of a season-long lackadaisical
attitude.
Before long, Fred Montour joined the comeback kids with a
brilliant and unexpected third place in the 1000-yard run. It was his
first decent race since he was to be a similar surprise in last year's
indoor championship.
Any Illinois illusions of victory ended as Michigan swelled its lead
to 331/3-25.
The Wolverines, howyever, were just beginning to display their
ability in the clutch.
Tony Seth redeemed himself for several mediocre performances
during the regular season by going all-out in the 600-yard run. Seth,
who usually lets someone else set the pace, jumped out in front right
away and just kept lengthening his margin until the home stretch,
Robinson added another laurel to his collection when the condi-
tions were stacked against him. He drew the outside lane in the 300
which is the worst you can get. Still he kicked into high gear im-
mediately and sped away from the field to win by a full second.
WH Y DID HE GO ALL-OUT when the injury risk was hanging over
him? "After all," he joked to Illinois Coach Leo Johnson after
the meet, "we (George Kerr of Jamaica and himself) have to start
getting ready to beat the Americans in Rome this summer."
Sophomores Ergas Leps and McRae did their share in the last
events to make up for earlier losses.
Leps, who was third in the mile, gave Kerr a good battle in the
880 and finished second. McRae ran away from everyone in the low
hurdles for an upset over three who had better times going into the
meet.
Quarter-miler Bryan Gibson was Michigan's other comeback ace.
Injured and sick for half the season, he won a strong third in his
specialty.
It was only significant that he joined three other redeemed
stars-Dick Cephas, Leps and Seth-in closing the day with a great
mile relay performance, Thus, the old saying still stands. In fact, there
are nine other schools in the Big Ten who think the saying stands
tougher than ever.
